Pursuant to Articles L. 211-4 ff of the Consumer Code, in the event of non-compliance, you have the choice between repair or replacement of the Hardware in question. However, if choosing one of these options incurs a cost patently disproportionate to the other, given the value of the Hardware or the extent of the defect, the Vendor shall then proceed with the option you have not chosen. The non-compliance must be reported before the end of the Warranty Term. For a period of six (6) months following issue of the Hardware, you are not required to produce evidence of the non-compliance.
If you decide to make a claim under the warranty on hidden defects provided by Articles 1641 ff of the Civil Code, you may choose between cancellation of the sale or a reduction in the sale price, pursuant to the provisions of Article 1644 of the Civil Code.
Products or any consumables sourced from a third party (e.g. batteries) packaged or delivered with the Hardware are not covered by this Warranty but will be covered by that manufacturer’s warranty, where applicable.
